概要

Air purifiers are an extremely simple and efficient product that draws air in, purifies it, and blows the clean air out. 'Lhotse' is a product resulting from our endeavor toward an optimized mechanism for air flow and purification. The cylindrical product form presents a visual expression of the product's functionality-sucking the stale air in from underneath the product and blowing the clean air out through the fan on top. The form factor itself serves as an element of product identity.

デザインコンセプト

The cylinder-shaped fan draws the air in from underneath and blows the purified air out through the top. This is an example of expressing the function of the product through its form.

背景

While there is a growing interest in cleaner air, the market is being filled with cheap products that are not reliable for long-term use. There is a need for a highly reliable product that stays true to the essential function of air purification.

デザイナーの想い

At first sight, the product should be able to communicate to the user what it does and how it should be used. This product design effectively expresses the location of the controls, the path of airflow, and how the filters can be replaced.

企画・開発の意義

We decided that the product should be in the shape of a tall cylinder with a small footprint so that it can be placed in any small space. This design proportion not only sets the product apart from others, but also has the functional advantage of distributing purified air higher and further away.

創意工夫

The slant that cuts across the top and bottom of the cylindrical form not only stand out as the product's main characteristic, but also allows the product to deliver a high level of performance by maximizing the intake and discharge areas despite its compact size. Likewise, the filters are stacked in multiple layers and are slanted within the cylinder.

仕様

500x500x800(mm) / 12kg

審査委員の評価

空気清浄機は通常振動が起きるものだが、本製品はデザイン上、床との接触面が少ないので振動が少ないというメリットがデザインによって実現されている。また、空気清浄フィルターの形状を斜めにしたことで、フィルター面積が広がり、空気清浄能力を大幅にアップさせている。これらの機能を構造によって改善した点が評価できる。
